when i tok my lil boy to the ER last night the dr mentiond that he looked like he might have fifth's diease..or it could be his exzema..
my question is should i be worried enough to call his dr and make an appointment with her? ive found little information about this. but from what i understand its not a good things to be around when pregnant, and from what i also understand the rash and red cheecks doesnt appear untill after the cold like symtoms are gone..which makes me think its jsut his exzema.
im super confused as to what to do right now..
any input or info would be nice.

my 11 yo had it when she was 3 1/2.. and you are correct it says not to be around pregnant woman, but the fact that the 'slapped cheeks' and the lacy rash comes after the cold symptoms are done, it is hard to know when they were first affected... but it is not a case of worry... if she seems aggravated by the rash, use some gentle lotion and/or tylenol for fever... it goes away in a week or so, and there is nothing to treat it, it is just a common cold virus, with an unusual name :) here's some facts on it...
